    Question Appointment times shift and DST?

    Advertisement



    So all my appointments in a few series shift forward (8:30am to 9:30am) an hour starting the week of the 8th in March on the Blackberry calendar. This weirded me out and annoys me as I tried to fix this and couldn't... I've come to conclusions but ...

    My questions are:

    - Is this normal?

    - Does this have to do with the fact that that's when Daylight Savings is in effect? (Spring forward)

    - Will the Blackberry automatically switch to the new time when it comes to that time? I have my time set to "network."

    No, I don't think thats normal. Just so we understand, you have entered the appointments at one time and they are showing up on your BB at a different time? I assume you first input these on your desktop calendar? Are you using Outlook? If so, which one?

    If your time zone is affected by DST, the blackberry time will adjust to DST, but it will not affect your appointments (9:30 appt will still be at 9:30)

    Sorry, more questions than answers here....

    Yes. I entered a few appointments earlier this year. These few appointments each occur every week until April at the same time on their days.

    Example. One is set as starting at 8:30am. It occurs on the calendar at that time until the week of the 8th of March, then it shows as 9:30am.

    I just checked my 8310 and my 7 pm appointments are still at 7 pm in March and April...
    Is it ONLY on the BB calendar that the time changes?

    No it was the BB calendar, Google, and outlook. But then again they are all synced......

    I just edited the entries in the Google Calendar, synced that, then sync the BB with the computer. Everything is fixed as of now.... I think there may have been a miscommunication in the earlier stages with the Google Calendar....

    I was traveling through many time zones Dec/Jan. And the syncs with the computer did change my BB time zone to central when I was in mountain, and at one point Google wanted to change the zone on the calendar to mountain.... maybe a glitch, maybe a user error.... I'll update if anything like this happens again (new).

    Thanks for the help though.
